Yes and no.

With no modifications, I believe the 2600 only outputs via RF, in which case you need to run it through a VCR to convert it to composite, and then you need something like an RT2X plus an HDMI->VGA converter, or a VGP Koryuu (whenever they come out), or something else that can get you from composite video to either YPbPr or RGB.

With a composite video mod, you again need an RT2X plus an HDMI->VGA converter, VGP Koryuu, or something else along those lines.

Lastly, if you have skill and/or money, Tim Worthington has an RGB mod for the 2600; however, it requires a similar installation to the NESRGB (desolder processor from motherboard, socket processor to RGB board, socket RGB board to motherboard), so it’s not for the faint of heart (or wallet).
